Air powered shotgun

Someone I know (acquaintance) swears there is a air powered shotgun that shoots 12ga at around 1400fps. He says it is quiet and uses it to shot deer......I find this hard to believe but I thought I would ask if anyone here can actually verify his claims. Apparently its by a firm called something like forced air or such.

Well, this one doesn't have that kind of power, but it still sounds sort of fun.

I call BS on the claim that it is "quiet". I've got a couple of precharged pneumatic airguns that are anything but quiet - one is almost as loud as a std vel .22LR. Can't imagine that a compressed air shotty would be much different, and if anything I'd anticipate it could be much louder due to the massively increased bore.

There is indeed an air rifle made of the size actually bigger than 12 gage and could likely be loaded to shoot shot that fast, but it is made for slugs and is anything BUT quiet.



He used a 20mm cannon barrel.
